Informative and inspiring, Renegade Marketing is both a guide and a challenge to B2B marketers: be courageous, be purposeful and be storytellers or be ignored!


Linda Kaplan Thaler

As Drew puts it in this wonderfully engaging book, renegade marketers don’t just think differently, they successfully inspire others to act differently.


Brent Adamson

Bestselling author of "The Challenge Sale" & Distinguished VP, Gartner

Drew Neisser, "The Renegade Marketer", distinguishes himself as a valued leader in the tough world of B-2-B marketing. He's a "renegade" because he consistently dares to be bold, original, and honest. His book is a treasure chest of insightful and actionable strategies and techniques. Reading it is an investment in business success.


Glen Gilmore

Author of "Social Media Law for Business", adjunct instructor of Digital Marketing at Rutgers University School of Business, "Man of Action" Time Mag.

This book provides an in-depth look at B2B marketing with helpful take-aways in every chapter. I found the chapter on Marketing Technology particularly insightful as it provided guidance for marketing practitioners on a very complex and confusing subject. What is the appropriate amount of technology? What works and what doesn’t? Where to find it, and how to measure its results?


Martha Reeves

Professor, Director of Markets & Management Studies, Duke U.

Drew has written a provocative book that all at once challenges and inspires B2B marketers to reinvent their roles and impact. Written in an artful, easy-to-read, narrative style, Drew’s book is a perfect reflection of who he is—challenging the status quo in a way that works. A must read for B2B marketers everywhere.


Kimberly A. Whitler

Frank M. Sands Sr. Associate Professor of Business Administration, Darden School of Business and author of Positioning for Advantage

What’s the best way to learn marketing? Talk to other marketers. And that’s what Drew Neisser does so well. His book isn’t just one guy’s thoughts about marketing, it’s a collection of practical insights and advice from some of the top marketers out there. Every chapter is chock full of actionable marketing ideas that you can implement in your business today.


Jeff Perkins

CEO, ParkMobile

I hired Renegade years ago because I believed in Drew's instinctive marketing smarts. He delivered career-changing ideas and his new book does, too. Our thinking about B2B branding will never be the same!


James Gardner

Senior Marketing Strategist, Adjunct Professor, Northeastern U.

If the point of marketing is to stand out from the competition, why do so many marketers slavishly follow the herd? Drew Neisser’s “Renegade Marketing” not only reminds you why it’s vital to your business that you break from the pack, it shows you how – with pages of real world strategies, insights and tactics drawn from Drew’s interviews with hundreds of CMOs. CMOs who, by daring to be different, have beaten their competition, driven sales, increased customer loyalty, and improved employee retention. So now you can too.
